About The Masters Golf Championship at Augusta, Georgia
From April 2 – 8, 2018, the world’s finest golfers will converge upon Augusta National Golf – home of the Masters Golf Tournament – for one of the major tournaments held annually in professional golf. The Masters is 72-hole, four-day championship held Thursday through Sunday with Practice Rounds held Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday prior to the start of the tournament. The Master’s history is steeped in tradition. The winner not only receives a huge payday, but also receives a lifetime invitation to the Masters, an automatic invitation to every major tournament in the next five years, and the iconic “green jacket”.
Augusta National Golf Course was founded by golf legend Bobby Jones and businessman Clifford Roberts in 1931. Fascinated by the rolling terrain of the former indigo plantation and commercial nursery, Jones copied each hole from one of his favorite fairways worldwide to create the course of his dreams. Then, in 1934, he invited the world’s best golfers to a contest there and The Masters Tournament was born.
The island of Maui is the second-largest of the Hawaiian Islands with a population of just over 117,000. Maui has a thriving tourism industry and is one of the most popular islands to visit, featuring alluring attractions like the massive Haleakala volcano, the bustling whaler village of Lahaina, the magnificent humpback whales, the infamous stretch of road to Hana and its numerous family-friendly resorts and inviting white-sand beaches. Maui is also the largest island in Maui County, which is comprised of three other islands: Lana`i, Kaho`olawe, and Moloka`i.
TOP ISLAND PICKS
The road to Hana – A meandering drive on the road to Hana, a classic Hawaiian small town, is full of hairpin turns, one-lane bridges, and breathtaking island views.

Haleakala National Park – Go on an excursion to the “House of the Sun”, an active but non-erupting volcano.
Molokini – A small island just off the southern coast of Maui creates a paradise for snorkelers and divers looking for beautiful coral and tropical fish.

Visitors will find a variety of options for whale watching experiences departing from Lahaina which can be followed by a visit to the town’s shops, art galleries, and restaurants.
Go to a luau – Rich with Hawaiian history, the shores of Maui are the perfect setting to experience a traditional luau, including the main course cooked in the earth accompanied by live music and a hula dance sharing Hawaii’s stories.
Golfer’s paradise – With 14 courses to choose from and several options falling onto various best course lists, golfers can tee off near ancient lava flows, palms trees or an ocean mist.
